Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The amount of Zn64 produce should be determined after 18.4h.

Concept Introduction:

Half-life period: The time required to the reduce to half of its original value.

• This is denoted by: t1/2
• This term is popularly use in nuclear chemistry, to describe the stability & unstability of atoms or radioactive decay.
• For determination of first order rate constant K in half –life period we use

K=0.693t1/2 Equation.

• The half-life in first order does not depends upon the initial concentration.

Formula:

First order rate constant: K=0.693t1/2

Age calculation:

lnNtN0=-kt

To find: The half-life
